I liked the way the eagles were unflustered by returning to the nest after the invasion and finding two eggs instead of one and then a baby instead of an egg. It didn't seem to bother them at all that they didn't see it hatch.

LOVE the video! Peter hanging from the helicoptor just takes my breath away...I can't even begin to imagine what that must be like...and holding precious cargo, too!

I loved Dr Sharpe's wild and dangerous ride, but was also touched by how gently he handled the chicks.

I think I was most amazed when the live chick was put back in the nest and was accepted by the adult eagles as if they had hatched it themselves.

I can't find a favorite part yet, I'll have to watch it a few dozen more times. I loved the part with the 3 sweet little chicks all snuggled in and when Dr Sharpe was able to steady the little weak baby with the floppy neck's head and help with its eating. Dr Sharpe, do we have a tag number on that little angel?

Did anyone notice the footage at the very beginning where the adult eagle was shown swooping down and grabbing something off the ground? I stepped through that frame by frame and I could make out the wing tag that looked like K60 or K10. I wonder if it possibly could have been K10?

My personal favorite was when Dr Sharpe was fostering the chick into the nest and the mom took off from the nest and buzzed him...something about seeing the protective nature, in a chick that wasn't hers that got to me.

I also liked the chicks going beak to beak...way to cool!!!

He definitely brought a whole new meaning to the phrase "fear of heights" to me. I told Darrell (EagleD) that if I worked there I would only be able to take care of the ground nest. I held my breath the entire time Jim Spickler was in the nest on banding day.

Loved the video - every millisecond of it - couldn't pick a "favorite" part.

This is driving me crazy because my video hasn't arrived yet. My cheque has been processed, but the DVD has to get through the border so I hope those customs agents MOVE IT!

I have two favorites. 1. The chick having it's neck supported and fed By Dr. Sharpe. 2. The parent eagles accepting the chick even though they didn't hatch it.

!. Human beings can be grand. 2. Mother Nature is grand.

I liked the 'look' the chicks give when picked up!

I'd expect to get my eyes plucked out, but Peter says the seldom do that.

I still like that 'look'!
